If the the majority of people are going to be a bit better off, then you can guarantee that a significant segment (though less than the majority) will be a lot worse off.

Besides, this is coming from a government who mentioned nothing about road tolls prior to the last general election, then dropped the bombshell within a couple of weeks of getting back into power. They know that this policy would have cost them the election, so as far as I'm concerned, Blair is in no.10 under false pretences.

Then again, as I've said before, I'm not sure who I'd replace him with. They're all as bad as each other.
Me, Replace them with Me
